Note: Jones explains that people danced to songs like "A Charge To Keep I Have": "Oo, I love it! That's the way they used to sing it, they used to shake hands – jumping around. I didn't know there was any other way to sing it till I came to this church." Antoinette Marchand: What's a shout? Bessie Jones: A shout is a song to dance by.
